LeaderJames Reid


The State of Lanorth is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by James Reid with an iron fist, and renowned for its public floggings, infamous sell-swords, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, hard-working, cynical, humorless population of 4.139 billion Lanorthans are kept under strict control by the oppressive government, which measures its success by the nation's GDP and refers to individual citizens as "human resources."

The medium-sized, corrupt, moralistic, well-organized government is primarily concerned with Defense, with Law & Order, Education, and Industry also on the agenda, while Spirituality and Environment aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Wellington. Citizens pay a flat income tax of 86.5%.

The frighteningly efficient Lanorthan economy, worth a remarkable 1,328 trillion Crownes a year, is broadly diversified and mostly comprised of black market activity, especially in Arms Manufacturing, Information Technology, Uranium Mining, and Retail. Average income is an amazing 321,001 Crownes, with the richest citizens earning 5.8 times as much as the poorest.

The country's famous rainforests are being bulldozed by the mining industry, at the edge of the final frontier space's biggest missile platform is about to unfold, soldiers must key in their passwords every time they want to reload their weapons, and being wrong on the internet has been classified as digital terrorism. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a well-funded police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lanorth's national animal is the Lion, which is also the nation's favorite main course, and its national religion is Christianity.

Lanorth is ranked 6,261st in the world and 355th in The North Pacific for Highest Poor Incomes, with 123,857.96 Standard Monetary Units.
